New Partnership with VelocityEHS Offers Ergonomics Assessments Through State-of-the-Art Software
QBE North America is pleased to announce a partnership with VelocityEHS, the global leader in cloud-based environment, health, safety (EHS) and sustainability solutions, to offer its Humantech Industrial Ergonomics software as a service. This software delivers innovative, AI-based sensorless motion-capture technology to QBE customers, enabling them to recognize employee ergonomics issues in the workplace in real time.
Musculoskeletal disorder injuries (strains and sprains) are a leading cause of workplace injuries for companies and their employees across the United States.i These injuries are often painful, debilitating, and can be expensive.
With embedded artificial intelligence powered by decades of professional analytical ergonomics experience, this new solution is available virtually or via onsite consultations. Once a report is generated, QBE’s Global Risk Services’ consulting team can provide tailored solutions to help prevent worker injuries.
“Poorly-designed workplaces not only cause employee injury and stress; they can lead to long-term pain, absenteeism, and loss of productivity. Anyone looking to accurately and quickly assess jobs for musculoskeletal disorder risk can benefit from this new technology,” said Paul Isaac, Senior Vice President and Loss Control Leader.
“VelocityEHS is leading the movement to interventional, or Active EHS technologies in the workplace. Our Humantech Ergonomics offerings are a clear example of how we are leveraging the power of machine learning, our proprietary data sets and exclusive algorithms to move from documentation to mitigation, providing orders of magnitude more value for our customers,” said John Damgaard, VelocityEHS CEO.
